Plattsmouth terminates water emergency declaration

Posted at 6:11 PM, Sep 03, 2019

PLATTSMOUTH, Neb. (KMTV) — In March, the City of Plattsmouth declared a water emergency after its water treatment plant suffered damages due to flooding. Today, they say the plant is once again producing water which is "safe and good" and may be used to water lawns.

While the quality is good, they say only one of five wells is currently operational and only two of four pumps are turning.

For residents who were unable to water their lawns, they say people may now do so but recommend doing it at night or very early in the morning when usage is lower.

They say the water may show signs of turbidity, meaning it may be cloudy, but that it should decrease in the next several days. The cloudiness is caused by "transitions from the Cass County Rural Water District #1."
